Background: As said “to identify the individuality of human being and to reconstruct stature from different body part is his birth right” and also the stature of a person is considered as an inherent character by the anthropologists. So for establishment of the identity of a person, measurement of stature is considered as the most valuable parameter in forensic anthropology.
Present study is undertaken to derive a regression equation for estimation of stature from percutaneous tibial length.
Material and methods: Present study was carried out on 400 subjects (200 male and 200 female) among the population of India. The stature and percutaneous tibial length was measured and the data was analyzed statistically and the regression equation was derived.
Result: The linear regression equation derived from percutaneous tibial length for the measurement of height showed statistically significant relationship ( p < 0.05 ) in both the sexes.
Conclusion: The present study revealed that there is a positive correlation exists between the stature and percutaneous tibial length. Hence, this study is very much useful for forensic expert as well as for the anthropologist.
